jody + david

at the bride's family home in Oakland Michigan

robot cuff links!

many emotions present in this one expression

second shooter Kali caught a grandfather nose grab with the Hasselblad... which was cute, but I like this image just before said event even more. And yes Michiganders, that's Faygo he's holding.

Kali again, with her unusual way of seeing

jody amazingly sewed not only these happy little flowers onto her own dress, she also made all of the pretty outfits for her neices!

a small look into photo editing for the curious... I was torn between these two photographs to represent this part of the day. The image below wins for its clean sense of composition, but the image above is ultimately stronger for its content and meaning. I love that you can see tender windows into three separate family relationships all in one frame.

Nila + John

at the Florence Griswold Museum in Old Lyme, CT. This museum made for such a luminous celebration. Candice of Jubilee Events kept things fresh with airy soft blushes and perfectly ripened peaches everywhere you looked. Guests who braved some ferocious weather to make it there were rewarded with this remarkable day.

the florence griswold museum is home to one of Patrick Dougherty's stick work sculptures.

fragrant peaches everywhere!
